The Attorney of the lawyer Alvaro Noboa Ponton, Sylka Sanchez, sent on April 18 a letter to David Lindwall, General Consul of the USA in Guayaquil, to request a certification to prove that Noboa didn’t travel to the United States on March 15 of this year, as stated by the Economist Carlos Marx Carrasco, General Director of the Internal Revenue Services (SRI).
She also wrote a letter to Carrasco to request the Office that the SRI sent to the Ministry of the Interior referring to the “Official Information” provided by a supposed Attaché of the Investigation Office of the National Security Department of the Government of the United States, as stated by Carrasco in Gamatv on April 17.
In the letter addressed to the Consul, she attached a CD with the statements expressed by the director of the SRI, which were transmitted by Gamatv news program on April 17. As that in the other letter she attached a copy of the book “Alvaro Noboa, political persecution and constitutional resistance” of the jurist Jorge Zavala Egas, explaining the legal inconsistencies in the case that the businessmen faces against the Government and the SRI.
In the document addressed to Carrasco, she reiterates that the he has to answer to all Ecuadorians why in the fiscal year of 2005, the SRI aims to collect from Exportadora Bananera Noboa $49′ 206.895, 28; while Dole, foreign company and the largest exporter of bananas in the world, only was collected by tax income the sum of $700.136,37 for the same fiscal year.
According to the letters, the information that Noboa left the country on March 15 is false, because the businessman left the country legally, once a constitutional judge granted a habeas corpus, on March 20, which lifted the restriction of leaving the country. “The sentence remains in force because it hasn’t been revoked by any Ecuadorian Judge, and according to our Constitution, only a judge of the judicial function and not an administrative employee of the SRI can forbid a citizen to leave the country” indicates in the letter of Sylka Sanchez.
